North Carolina reports $250m filming production spend for first half of 2013

The North Carolina Film Office has reported local filming production spending of USD250 million for the first half of 2013. Around 35 separate projects - including Stephen King miniseries Under the Dome - have already filmed locally or have indicated they intend to do so.

North Carolina continues to be a preferred location in the film industry,” commented North Carolina Film Office Director Aaron Syrett: “Our talented crew base, vast array of locations and the state’s tax incentive - while not the largest in the nation, it’s certainly the smartest - provide filmmakers and industry leaders the right mix for bringing their productions here and showcasing them to viewers worldwide.”

Television productions filming in the state have included dystopian sci-fi Revolution, supernatural drama Sleepy Hollow, Stephen King miniseries adaptation Under the Dome and established terrorism hit Homeland.

North Carolina offers a 25% refundable filming tax credit to shoots that spend at least USD250,000 locally. The state’s total production spend for the whole of 2012 came to more than USD376 million.
